This Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) conference will showcase successful programs/approaches in addressing complex needs and social determinants of health, with the broader purpose of identifying what works and how.
It has long been acknowledged that people with complex needs often fall through the cracks in service delivery - between national and jurisdictional service delivery, between government and non-government services, and between services delivered by different portfolio agencies. This conference seeks to identify and showcase successful collaborative efforts in service delivery, with a view to informing whole-of-government approaches to policy and program development. The PHAA notes that the Australian Government's Social inclusion agenda has acknowledged this as an area of need and is working toward reforming the delivery of government services to improve outcomes for people with complex needs.
This conference will provide an opportunity to hear the most recent research and practitioner wisdom and to provide ideas on contributions that break down structural and systemic barriers to achieving better health and social outcomes for people with complex needs. With noted national experts from both government and non-government sectors showcasing their work, the conference aims to shed new light and consider current evidence about issues relevant to, and the challenges in seeking to, achieve better outcomes for people with complex needs in the Australian community.
